Why Choose LSUHSC-NO Anesthesiology?

Our Program

The Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) at New Orleans, Department of Anesthesiology Residency Program is designed to prepare residents in the medical specialty of anesthesiology for practice in any setting, including advancement into subspecialty fellowship training. The ultimate goal of the program at LSUHSC is to develop residents into complete perioperative physicians and consultant anesthesiologists. We also aim to develop perioperative physicians with skills and experiences that can be utilized outside of the confines of the operating room in other areas of the medical complex and community.  Our program emphasizes the acquisition of technical and cognitive skills and the development of the individual as a professional with empathy for patients. The didactic and clinical curricula are designed in order to meet the above stated goals. Residents will be given the training and support needed to achieve the goal of certification by the American Board of Anesthesiology after successful completion of the residency program.

The department and the residency program have a clearly defined mission as well as goals and objectives that are designed to nurture efficiency, motivation, intellectual honesty, critical appraisal, accountability, self evaluation and a spirit of inquiry.

The Residency Training Program has a strong and well developed educational program that embraces formal lectures, key word concepts, advanced anesthesia conferences, surgical intensive care unit conferences, morbidity and mortality conferences, departmental grand rounds, Continuing Performance Improvement/Quality Improvement meetings, journal club, mock oral examinations, simulation training, and a visiting professor program.  In order to meet the clinical needs of the training, residents will rotate through University Medical Center New Orleans, Ochsner Medical Center-Kenner, Children's Hospital of New Orleans, and Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center.

The LSUHSC Department of Anesthesiology has established itself within the Health Sciences Center as a progressive thinking, proactive group of physicians that seeks to promote awareness of the medical specialty of anesthesiology as an integral part of the education of medical students and residents.
